Cluster Development Option Still on the Table for One County

CampbellCountyCampbell County officials last week reviewed information regarding cluster developments. Also known as “open space development”–the concept, groups homes and structures on a smaller, designated portion of a development parcel, preserving the remaining un-built area as open space; The state requires that a locality allow cluster developments if its population grows 10 percent or more. But, according to the Altavista Journal, in the last census, the County’s population growth was about 7 percent. The Board of Supervisors still has the option of adopting cluster developments and developers could decide whether or not to take the option. A workshop will be held before a final decision is made on the matter.
